Artikel der Marke Quinta do Passadouro
Quinta do Passadouro dates back to the 18th century and was always famous for its Port wines. The property is located in the sub region of Cima Corgo, near the village of Pinhão.
The extreme climate, hot during the day but cool at night, means that the grapes ripen more slowly than in other regions of the Douro giving freshness to the wines. This results in better quality harvests.
Traditionally, the best Vintage and Late Bottled Vintage came from famous Port houses also in this area.
As a result of the sharp slope of the shale soil and the limited width of the terraces, the grapes are harvested by hand. Wine producers deliberately choose organic farming methods and reject the use of any kind of chemicals. This is how they can guarantee a perfect base product for their excellent wines.
